My Econo I convection fan has given me nothing but problems!! I brought it to a local business who specialize in motors...had it taken apart, cleaned and re-lubricated. It ran great for 3 weeks, then crapped out on me again. I just left a message for my dealer to order me a new one. I bought the stove used and it appears that the fan was still the original. My dealer estiamted the age of the stove to be about 5 years old. I hope the new one has a longer life!! Good luck.
